On stage and in the studio, Jon Spencer has destroyed and rebuilt American roots music with such ferocity and wild abandon it is hard to believe that there is anything left. The trail of musical destruction he created with his legendary group Pussy Galore still smolders in the avant punk blues and nasty garage grind of the Blues Exposion, whose incredible, innovative output remains an indelible totem to his enormous mojo spirit and red-hot power of deliverance.


“Like all great primitivists, Jon Spencer sees elegance as a greater lie than brutality.”
- Rolling Stone
 
 
 
Dirty Shirt Rock 'N' Roll: The First Ten Years
Majordomo Records is proud to launch the first-ever reissue program of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s key albums, starting with their first-ever best-of collection, the 22-track Dirty Shirt Rock ’N’ Roll: The First Ten Years. For the past 25 years, Jon Spencer has destroyed and rebuilt American roots music, starting with his legendary group Pussy Galore. Closing in on a 20-year legacy, JSBX continues to record and tour and Spencer also splits his time with the rockabilly-infused Heavy Trash.



 
Now I Got Worry
The 1996 album Now I Got Worry was recorded on the heels of the unexpected success of the Orange album. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion responded by delving even deeper into black American music, recording in Memphis and Mississippi, and working with guest artists R.L. Burnside, Rufus Thomas and Money Mark (Beastie Boys). Expanded with 12 b-sides and unreleased tracks and 4 radio spots.



 
Controversial Negro
The 1997 live album Controversial Negro was only available as a promo LP and Japanese CD before quickly going out of print. It captures JSBX at a sweat-drenched show in Tucson in 1996, and this reissue adds 4 more tracks from the show, plus 12 tracks recorded in 1994 at the same venue.
